Abstract: This dissertation examines the social and educational experience of the first mass wave of Mexicans who migrated to Chicago in the early twentieth-century. It recaptures how the racially, socially, and economically charged experiences of Mexicans reshaped their national and cultural identity in Chicago. This study explores how their ideals for a democratic, equitable, and self-governing society influenced how they viewed schools. It examines their migration to Chicago, their eventual settlement in various colonias, and examines how the national and cultural identity of their youth became critical in their understanding of social institutions.
